Getting use to the food. I made Turkey Meatloaf this week. It was interesting. I didn’t want to add bread crumbs to avoid the carbs. It wasn’t bad in the taste factor, but it kind of fell apart. I did put black beans and corn in it to try and help. It’s definitely something to work on.
Otherwise, I am focusing on the health factor of the food even though I am having a hard time balancing the right foods. My Fitness Pall was getting a lot of attention and it started to become discouraging. I just had to accept that I wasn’t going to get it perfect. Once I did that, it was actually much easier to eat healthy.
You also quickly realize how many bad choice options there are all around you. Especially when you go out to eat. The portions are always way to big and trying to find a healthy option takes some digging. Luckily, I have my husband to eat the other portion for me…or I can take it home for lunch/dinner the next day. I always thought I had good eating habits and allowed myself a calorie splurge now and then. It’s not until this program were I really took a close look and realized that I needed a few changes.
So for anyone else struggling with the food, just know…it’s you and everyone else too. You are definitely not alone.
Do you use a food journal? What do you use?
Here's an option!
